Kingston Frazier's mother left him in a vehicle with its motor running in the parking lot of a Jackson supermarket while she shopped Thursday morning. The boy's body was later found inside of his mother's abandoned Camry, about 10 miles from the store, Jones said.

Frazier had been abducted in a grocery store parking lot and shot in the head. Authorities issued an Amber Alert and asked whoever had the child to bring him home, according to The Clarion-Ledger in Jackson.

Police have now reportedly taken a third suspect into custody in connection with the kidnapping and murder of little Kingston Frazier. All three are from the Jackson area. They could have left that child on that backseat, asleep.

They are being held at the Madison County Detention Center.

Six-year-old Kingston Frazier was found dead just hours after he was kidnapped while he was sleeping in his mother's vehicle early Thursday morning in Jackson, Mississippi.

"This is the worst day of my career - of my 17-year career", said Jackson police Cmdr. They face capital murder charges and are set for initial court appearances Monday morning.

Three young men have been arrested in the USA, hours after a 6-year-old boy was found shot dead in his mother's stolen vehicle.

At 9:47 a.m. CST, approximately nine hours after Kingston was abducted, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation canceled the Amber Alert sent out for him just as reports began to trickle in that he had even found.

One of the juveniles in custody is a senior at Ridgeland High School, a football player until he was dismissed from the team previous year, Superintendent Ronnie McGehee told the Clarion-Ledger.

The father alleged that his son didn't know the other two suspects involved, "period".

Video surveillance captured a Honda Civic driving up to the mom's Toyota Camry before a passenger got out and into Kingston's vehicle. As Frazier's mother entered the store, another auto arrived, a man got out of it, sat in the Camry and drove off.

After pulling up next to the Camry, the passenger reportedly jumped into the driver's seat and took off - speeding away, along with his accomplice.
